Got a Question?

  1. It’s understandable if you do. Here’s the answers to some questions that come up the most:

Do you provide leads?

Kirsten Hughes, UK Managing Director

"We don’t provide leads, as our model builds repeat business from your trusted relationships - family, friends, colleagues, your network - not from poor-quality, cold leads"

How much money will I make?

Jim Eastwood, Global Sales Director

"Travel Counsellors make an above-industry average of AED15,000 per month. But, our business model has the scope to support you to achieve unlimited earnings as some of our top Travel Counsellors."

Will I have my own website?

Matt Harding, Head of Franchise Sales

"We’ll help you create your own profile page on the Travel Counsellors website, support you with social media to build your business, and give you analytics to monitor performance"
